Live Review: Thick, Skating Polly, Teenage Bigfoot, Philadelphia, PA, Oct. 13, 2022

Loud and loose, fast and focused, the stacked bill of Thick, Skating Polly and Philly’s own Teenage Bigfoot crammed more than three dozen songs into a smidge more than two hours at Kung Fu Necktie.

From mansplaining and periods to potholes and diminishing attention spans, all three bands transformed scourges into song with sneers that couldn’t couldn’t mask their infectious joy for playing to a small sea of nodding, grooving and headbanging fans.
